Beat the heat with a great home-made cold brew! For an amazingly refreshing, full-flavored and healthy iced tea experience, we recommend a cold-brew of our premium Anji Bai Cha green tea!
Why cold brew?
Cold-brewed tea produces a sweeter, smoother and fresher taste since fewer catechins and caffeine are extracted during the cold brew process, thus reducing the bitterness and astringency of the tea. Also, cold brewing tea is a great way to discover new flavors from your old tea! Plus, it takes just a little effort to make a wonderful tea.
Please note that, although cold brewing can reduce bitterness and caffeine, it also hinders the extraction of beneficial antioxidants that would otherwise have been released with hot brewing. But this can also be achieved by extending the brewing time, resulting in a stronger flavor and the release of higher levels of these nutrients.
Why Anji Bai Cha green tea?
In general, green tea and white tea are two of the better candidates for cold brewing. Both white tea and green tea have a light and refreshing taste. They are more aromatic, refreshing and less astringent than when brewed hot.
Anji Bai Cha is simply one of the best-tasting green teas. It is refreshing and sweet and flavorful, with no bitterness or astringency. As this tea has twice the protein content, about 6.8%, than any other green tea, the taste is naturally fresher. It also helps you to stay calm and focused on a hot day.
How to cold brew: Simply pour filtered or spring water over your loose tea, approximately 4 grams or 2 tbsp per 4 ounces of water, and store in the refrigerator for 4-6 hours, or even overnight. Then simply strain and drink either straight or with ice. The tea leaves/water ratio can, of course, be adjusted to taste.
Add your personal touch: There are many ways to enjoy this tea cold brewed. Although we find that this premium tea does not necessarily need any other ingredients to enhance its taste, we encourage you to create your own blends, adding natural ingredients such as syrup, honey, berries, cut fruit, etc. Experiment and have fun!
